My new book Hidden Currents, is a romance novel set in Lagos, Nigeria. It is about Ada, a fiercely independent and hardworking photographer, and Eddie, who is rich, fun loving, and different from her in every way.

The book is a sweet story of how they fall in love, despite all the impediments of first  impressions, past issues, personality quirks, and class differences, all within the bustling city of Lagos.

What genre is it?

Hidden Currents is a romance novel, it is also contemporary African fiction. It is part of the Lagos Romance Series, the first book of the series, Always Yours, was published earlier.

Tell us a bit more about Always Yours.Always Yours

As mentioned previously, Always Yours is the first book in the series, and should be read before Hidden Currents.

What kind of readers will the Lagos Romance series appeal to?

It will appeal to all lovers of romance, happy endings, good stories, and well rounded characters. It was written to be savored and enjoyed.

Complete this sentence for us: if you like _________________, you’ll love the Lagos Romance series.
If you like happy endings, love, romance, strong heroines, and generally good fiction.

How would you like the reader to feel as they read the last word of your book?
I would like the reader to feel satisfied, entertained, and glad to have read my book. I would like them to love it so much they immediately want to see what else I’ve written.

What else have you written?

I have another book which is not a romance, it’s called Jungle Justice and is a short story about violence in Nigeria.

Tell us a little more about yourself and your background.

I am a writer, Architect, student, and book lover. I was born in Benin City, in Nigeria, and I have been reading since before I can remember. I currently live in Lagos, where I work and write.

There must be something in the water over there; you’re the second Nigerian architect we’ve interviewed. Have you got a website where we can keep up with your work?

Yes, My website is at there, you can read excerpts of my work.

How can we follow you on social media?

You can follow me on twitter at @somiekhasomhi, and on Facebook,

What’s next?

I’m planning to write a whole series of romances set in Lagos. After that I plan to spread out to other genres, and spend a lot more time writing.

  1. I had to go check out the second Nigerian architect writer. What are the chances? Congrats on the release of Hidden Currents.

  2. :) @ Nana. That was one of the first things I did too, and Aversion seems like a great book.
